I love “Fixer Upper.”  It is a show starring Chip and Joanna Gaines [show pic].  They take dilapted, dated houses and transform them into beautiful, welcoming homes [show pic of before & after of a home they’ve renovated].   The climax of each episode is the “reveal” when an old photo of the home obscuring their view is removed.  Now the new façade is unveiled to the delight of the owners. 


This morning we’re going meet a man that was totally transformed by Jesus.  We will see his before pic and his after pic.  His transformation touched many of his family and friends.


What happened to him Jesus wants to happen to us.  He wants to transform us and, in turn, impact the world through us.  That’s really what “Go Day” was all about—transformed people being used by God to touch the 225 for Jesus!

"Lo primero es lo primero"

(1 Corintios 15:1-10)


“Primero lo primero”. Este es un dicho que todos conocemos. Significa que debemos prestar atención y atender las cosas mas importantes primero. 

La historia de la Pascua es lo "primero, primero" en nuestra relación con el Señor. Oremos para que esto sea una realidad en este Domingo de Resurrección!

Después de todo, "primero lo primero".


  1. El contenido de las buenas nuevas


“…Cristo murió por nuestros pecados tal como dicen las Escrituras. Fue enterrado y al tercer día fue levantado de los muertos, tal como dicen las Escrituras. Lo vio Pedro y luego lo vieron los Doce. (1 Corintios. 15:3-5).


  1. Dos eventos
  2. Dos evidencias


  1. Las consecuencias de las buenas nuevas


“Pero por la gracia de Dios soy lo que soy; y su gracia no ha sido en vano para conmigo, antes he trabajado más que todos ellos; pero no yo, sino la gracia de Dios conmigo "

(1 Corintios. 15:10).


  1. La Gracia hacia nosotros
  2. La Gracia con nosotros


  1. La comunicación de las buenas nuevas


Yo les transmití a ustedes lo más importante y lo que se me había transmitido a mí también. Cristo murió por nuestros pecados tal como dicen las Escrituras. (1 Corintios. 15:3).


  1. Recibir el evangelio
  2. Compartir el evangelio

“First Things First”

1 Corinthians 15:1-10

  1. Two events
  2. Two evidences
  1. The consequence of the good news

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me (1 Cor. 15:10).


  1. Grace toward us
  2. Grace with us
  1. The communication of the good news

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received . . . (1 Cor. 15:3a).

  1. Relay the gospel
  2. Receive the gospel
